Whether you’re drinking coffee in an airport lounge; waving to the crowds as you board a cruise-liner; walking through the doors of an expensive hotel: there’s just something about great luggage which makes you stand out from the crowd. A luxury suitcase is one of those distinguished purchases that gives you an air of sophistication; a sense of dignity and class. 

Designers around the world have been channelling their creative efforts into producing stylish luggage for the more discerning travellers.  With summer on the horizon and jet-setters already planning their latest vacation, what better time to explore this year’s suitcase selection... And when it comes to luxury luggage, we’ve definitely got it packed! Here’s a preview of some of the classiest cases around.

Louis Vuitton’s Monogram Canvas Hardcase

An absolute design classic, Louis Vuitton’s famous Alzer suitcase is one of the most iconic pieces of luggage around. Reminiscent of the cases used by early explorers, it’s a spacious, sturdy suitcase that wouldn’t look out of place next to a globe and lion-skin rug. The hard, square case is made from Louis Vuitton’s trademark monogram canvas, and decorated with cream leather handles and matching luggage tags. The golden brass corners and gleaming rivets make this suitcase the definition of statement luggage. Available in five different sizes, it comes with a removable inner tray, perfect for separating belts and ties, as well as the Louis Vuitton “S” lock reinforced with two golden trunk latches. You can even have the suitcase personalised in almost any way imaginable, from hand-painted initials to individual monograms - it’s the perfect investment case in a classic design that you’ll be able to use for years.


Bottega Veneta’s Nero Intrecciato Range

Well known for its luxury leather goods, Bottega Veneta’s latest Nero Intrecciato Range is a stunning selection of woven leather cases ready to be transported straight from one runway to another. With three carry-on bags and three trolley cases available in a steely black and sophisticated burgundy, it’s an amazing, adaptable collection ready for you to pick and choose from. Carry on-bags are designed to slot over the collapsible handles of the trolley cases - and some of the bags even have padded compartments to stash your laptop in, making them perfect for everything from business weekends to those longer, lazy vacations.

Mulberry’s Scotchgrain Collection

English designer Mulberry has designed a hardy collection of stylish suitcases which epitomise laid-back sophistication. The hard-wheeled cases come in two colours, the fabulously named mole-cognac and black-cognac, and are wrapped in contrasting tan leather straps.  With three sizes to choose from, as well as a wheeled duffle bag, you’ll be spoilt for choice. These suitcases are hard-wearing and built to last, so if you choose to splash the cash on one of these designer trunks you can rest assured you’ll be arriving in style for years to come.

The Gucci Trolley

Well-established designer Gucci has released a leather-trimmed trolley suitcase in time for the holiday season. The case, available in both beige and ebony, is printed with the designer’s signature red and green web canvas. With a wide, retractable handle and a double zip closure lock, it’s a sturdy, secure case with plenty of space for all those holiday necessities. The trolley also features an outside zip pocket perfect for those essential documents, and an identification tag so everyone knows this stylish suitcase belongs to you!
